KINDLE Ü Fahrenheit 451 Ù Ray Bradbury Obliga a pensar y en el país de Montag esta prohibido pensar Porue leer impide ser ingenuamente feliz y en el país de Montag hay ue ser feliz a la fuerza Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that transcends it's dystopian theme and delivers its cautionary message in a timeless fashion what made this story compelling in 1953 remains provocative It is a strident call to arms a warning siren of darkness always on the perimeterCritics have tried to make of this and certainly it is an archetypal work but I think its simplicity is its great strength it is fundamentally about book burning literally and metaphorically A powerful allegory that also works well as a prima facie argument against censorship and a good science fiction novel all by itself Bradbury has stated that the novel is not about censorship but a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature which leads to a perception of knowledge as being composed of factoids partial information devoid of context and I can see that and in an age of Vine and Twitter this message is all too relevant but for me the image of the ironic fireman burning books is the endearing storyThis is a book that everyone should read at least once

PDF Ü BOOK Fahrenheit 451 ð RAY BRADBURY ð Fahrenheit 451 ofrece la historia de un sombrío y horroroso futuro Montag el protagonista pertenece a una extraña brigada de bomberos cuya misión paradójicamente no es la de sofocar incendios sino la de provocarlos para uemar libros Porue en el país de Montag está terminantemente pr Fahrenheit 451 ofrece la historia de un sombrío y horroroso futuro Montag el protagonista pertenece a una extraña brigada de bomberos cuya misión paradó Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended which would suggest that it is a failed attemptThere are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate since contemporary sources suggest paper combusts at 450 degrees Celsius which in Farenheit would be than 800 degrees The truth is paper combustion is gradual and dependent on many factors; even if some paper might combust at 451F his title is at best an oversimplification but Bradbury was interested in a punchy message than in constructing a thoughtful and well supported argumentIt's not a book about book censorship but a book about how TV will rot your brain Bradbury himself has stated this again and again as evidenced in this article which uotes Bradbury and in videos from Bradbury's own website indeed in an interview he stated he was inspired to write it because he was horrified that a woman might listen to a radio while walking her dog Not only does he patronizingly assume that she's listening to a soap opera instead of news or appreciating classical music but it's a strangely anti technology pose for a sci fi writer to take does it really matter whether we get our art and knowledge from compressed tree pulp or from radio transmissions?This book falls somewhat short of its satirical mark based on this cranky lawn loving neighbor's message Then again it was written in the course of a few days in one long uninterrupted slurry mercifully edited by his publishers but now available utterly restored It contains archetypes misconceptions and an author surrogate but can still be seen as a slighting view of authority and power and of the way people are always willing to deceive themselvesUnfortunately Bradbury did not seem to recognize that reading has always been the province of a minority and that television would do little to kill it More books are written published and read today than at any other point in history Most of them are just redundant filler but so is 90% of any mass creative output books art movies or TV as Sturgeon said And there's nothing new about that either cheap trashy novels have been a joke since the VictorianTelevision is a different medium than books and has its own strengths and weaknesses Bradbury's critiue of TV that it will get larger pervasive and become an escape for small minds is just as true of books As for television damaging social interaction who is less culturally aware the slack jawed boy watching television or the slack jawed boy reading one uninspired relic of genre fiction after another? I read a lot of books as a kid and watched a lot of TV and each medium provided something different Neither one displaced the other since reading and watching aren't the same experience There is an egalitarian obsession that people are all capable of being informed and intelligent We now send everyone to college despite the fact that for many people college is not a viable or useful route The same elitism that values degrees values being 'well read' and since this is the elitism of the current power structure it is idealized by the less fortunate subcultures Bradbury became informed not because he read but by what he read He could have read a schlocky pop novel every day for life and still been as dull as the vidscreen zombies he condemnsHe has mistaken the medium for the message and his is a doubly mixed message coming from a man who had his own TV show
